Jam Drops
24 November 2014

Sorry it is a day late, this time of year is a little INSANE! But better late than never. Especially when it involves Jam Drops! Thank you Mama Mariani. x

OK, so you know how I said those blue ribbons are addictive? Well I did enter a few categories in their pursuit. And one that I was triumphant in was the … Jam Drop!

To be honest, I had never really made them before, I was just keen to give them a go. The ones I made for the show really were perfect, I was so pleased with them. I have made them a few times since with varying results. I have learnt that the oven can be too hot, or the mix to airy. Always learning.

Jam Drops

What You Need

  • 120g butter
  • 100g caster sugar
  • Teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 190g self raising flour
  • Raspberry jam (home made if you can)

What You Need to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 170˚C.
  2. Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla together until pale.
  3. Add the egg and beat in well.
  4. Fold through flour.
  5. Roll or small balls of mixture, using a little plain flour on your hands I’d the mix is too sticky. Place onto a lined baking tray and press down slightly.
  6. Dip your finger in flour and make an indentation in the center of the biscuit.
  7. Fill the dent with 1 tsp of raspberry jam
  8. Bake for 12 to 15 mins
  9. Enjoy.  x

Ps. My raspberry jam is a winner too, next week I will share my secrets to jammy goodness.
